Actually it does have limited support. I do printing myself, and I
refuse to use M$ crap.
To be able to do the job I use Gimp for some editing (making sure to use
the CMYK ICC) and it will save in a RGB format. I then use scribus with
the same ICC to save in CMYK and final layout. It works very well in
Consider Gimp like Photoshop and Scribus like Illustrator. For help and
tips try meet the gimp, he offers an podcast in tips and tricks in Gimp
(and sometimes compares them to Photoshop methods).
Good luck :)
